Stanford’s self-driving Audi uses AI to speed past 110 mph on the track

By Nick Jaynes2016-03-03 19:22:28 UTC Stanford’s autonomous Audi takes to the track not to show off but instead to enhance self-driving car safety. Believe it or not, there’s utility in running Shelley, Stanford’s custom-rigged self-driving Audi TT S, around the track. Not only does it show just how well a computer can handle track driving, it also allows students to develop and improve upon emergency lane-change algorithms that might some day keep you safe on the freeway. The more high-speed laps Shelley makes — sometimes nearing 120 mph — the more it learns how to best handle corners. With artificial intelligence (AI) onboard, Shelley can learn how to best steer through corners. “A race car driver can use all of a car’s functionality to drive fast,” said Chris…
